Malcolm Tate hung up his flogger when his submissive sought out another Dom and landed in the hands of a serial killer. Convinced his lack of dominance sent his sub away, Mal has spent two years blaming himself for what happened. But when his best friend finally convinces him to go back to the local dungeon, Mal's grateful. Especially when he wins beautiful, submissive, firmly closeted Kyle Bingham in a charity slave auction.
College grad Kyle hasn't earned enough to move out of the loft his conservative, homophobic parents bought, much less to buy any of the other things still in their name. When he's won at auction by the hot, amazing Mal, he's shocked that anyone would want him. No one else seemed to - not his parents, his former Doms, or any of his disastrous dates.
But Mal does want him, and Kyle lets his guard down, only to be outed to his parents. With his world crashing down, he must find a way to trust Mal - and their developing relationship - or risk losing everything.

"Beautiful is the only word for it."
I was entranced from the first chapter. While the romance was less than traditional, I haven't read a more compelling tale of true love in quite some time.
What a "beautiful" and all-consuming story. I am Very impressed! Great balance of sexy times and deep love.
I hope the Author is writing a second and third book. I loved this one just need to know how things go with Kyle's Parents and how their relationship develops now that they are living together.
The narrator voice was awesome for this book!
Liked it. A little to sweet for me but once I started listening I had to finish. Narrator did a good job. It took me a while to get use to Kyle sounding like a kid based on how he was described in the book. Loved how natural the BSDM view seemed.
The story of Malcolm Tate and Kyle Bingham is a really good one. I liked how Mal and Kyle fell in love. It wasn't a traditional love story but that's why I fell in love with it. Mal was good for Kyle and vice versa. Kyle was my favorite part of the story. Kyle made me smile and laugh and I liked that he fell in love with Mal. I loved how Mal and Kyle were together. I really loved the ending but I do wish that this will have a sequel. I would like to know how things go for Mal and Kyle after the ending of this story. It feels like there should be a follow up to this. I want to listen to this again because I totally enjoyed it. This was my favorite audio book of all.
"Great BDSM story!"
I loved these two characters. BDSM is always intriguing to me. I will never understand the need for pain but I love reading about the lifestyle. The love these two have for each other made me very happy!
A beautiful story of love and life's journey of discovery and narration was superb too.
"Long one but good"
Narrator had two very distinct voices for the two very different characters. I really like that in an audio book.
Really good story by Ms Duncan. BDSM scenes well written and realistic. Really enjoyed this.
"Not just smut"
This book really surprised me. Yes it was about a BDSM relationship and the implementation of the lifestyle into everyday life, but it was also a very sweet love story about 2 people that were true soul mates.
I really loved reading about their bond and where each came from and how they learned to trust. Didn't hurt that it was also hot & steamy.
"Not for me...but maybe for you."
Honestly, I wouldn't change anything because the book was not for me. My subjective opinion is that, story-wise, it was a sweet story of trust and love. But the whole BDSM scene is not my thing; I found the "play scenes" a bit strong...again, for my taste. Perhaps to someone in the scene they might be perfectly acceptable or, even I dare say, enjoyable.
Not sure...will have to do a bit more research before purchasing another audiobook from this author. If all her books revolve around BDSM then maybe not. While I do enjoy a bit of kink in my storylines, extreme corporal punishment and orgasm denial are not it.
It was a good narration. But I much rather enjoyed the narration of Kyle's character than Mal's.
Again, a subjective opinion here. Not for me.
